Happy Clients

  • Like a lot of SFNewsletter readers, I figured Alex would be either too busy or simply uninterested in representing a first time buyer with a sub-seven figure budget. Ten months of searching and four offers later, we’re homeowners, and he’s still returning my calls…The cool thing about Alex is he’s new-school enough to embrace technology’s influence over his profession, but old-school enough to hold your sweaty hand through every step of escrow. Bottom line, if you’re looking to be escorted from property to property in your agent’s Mercedes while being lavishly praised for your exquisite taste and style, Alex ain’t your guy. But if you’re looking for consummate San Francisco market expertise, every tool you’ll ever need to find and evaluate your properties, and a Tiger Woods-like closing mentality – hell, you’re already reading his newsletter, posting to his blog, and god forbid you’re receiving his twitter banter – seriously, why use anyone else?!

  • We had our condo at the St. Regis listed for close to 8 months with another agent. We hired Alex and he sold it in two weeks! Amazing! Truly amazing and he was fun to work with the whole time, knew the market, knew we should take the offer we received, and knows where I should buy my next place. He is truly a pleasure to work with and really knows his stuff. His newsletter is great too.

  • Many of you know that Linda and I recently sold [XXXX] Chestnut and bought [XXXX] Chestnut. What you probably don’t know about is the guy who made it happen for us: Alexander Clark Alex killed it on both deals. He knew exactly how to market XXXX and held our hands while we dealt with the stress of moving out, staging the place, showing it, taking offers, and dealing with the buyer. In the end we got about 25% more than we expected, giving us the opportunity to reach a lot higher for our next place. On the flipside, Alex was incredibly patient while we waited for the right opportunity to buy (we can be a bit picky…). He never pushed us to look outside of our preferred neighborhoods even though inventory was nonexistent, and even when a few less-than-perfect places came along he didn’t lobby for bids. Ironically, by not gunning for the quick sale, that’s exactly what he ended up getting – we won the first place we went for! So if you’re thinking about doing a real estate deal in San Francisco [insert joke about market here], Alex is your man. Check out his work on theFrontSteps.com and ping me if you want an intro.

  • Alex is an outstanding broker and an unparalleled ally in the super competitive world of SF real estate. He has an extraordinary knowledge of San Francisco real estate and uses it to the maximum benefit of his clients. He is personal, thoughtful and engaging with clients - he worked really hard to understand what we wanted to to help us find it. He is responsive and diligent - available whenever you need him and he gets the job done. Alex was so helpful to us when we moved to SF from New York - he helped us understand the landscape and then find and buy exactly what we wanted. We could not have asked for more and it does not get better.

  • As a first time homebuyer, I was very nervous and had questions about everything (pricing, inspections, closing process, etc) but Alex was professional, considerate, supportive, and he promptly responded to all my questions and guided me throughout the entire process. I've worked with a few other real estate agents and I picked Alex because of his speed (and pretty much 24/7 service), attention to details (he reads everything), and most importantly, he is a great negotiator and would fight to get what's best for me. A few other things about Alex that impressed me: He is well-connected in the industry so he is a great source of information. He understands quickly what I like. When the market is hot and every day matters (we're living in an era where someone can get in contract and close within a few days), it's really important to find an agent who understands the client and the market inside-out, so that you are presented with the right properties and not waste time. Alex would zoom in to do research, figure out how competitive each individual property is, and go over details and comps to make sure that I'm prepared with information I need to make a solid winning offer. I met Alex at an open house that he was hosting, there was a line just to talk to him. But he was patient and answered every single question from every person, and then it was my turn and we chatted. After that, it took a few emails and he got it. Recommended me exactly what I was looking for and helped me snatch it. I would recommend Alex without hesitation. In fact, he has already helped 3 of my friends to buy and sell houses (and a few more at the moment). Buying and selling properties is stressful, why not find an agent that you like to do it all for you whilst you go surfing, golfing, or sailing?
